Muslims in India will be under scanner until they follow orthodox rules: Sena

New Delhi [India], Oct 14 (ANI): After the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) and other Muslim outfits announced their decision to boycott of the Law Commission's exercise to seek inputs for a Uniform Civil Code (UCC), the Shiv Sena on Friday said that the Muslim community should abide by the Law Commission's questionnaire as only then they will be considered 'true Muslims' and wanted to abide by the constitution.

Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut told ANI that it is not something unusual that Indian civil code has been opposed by the Muslim organisation.

"But opposing UCC is not in the interest of the nation and Muslim community. In the interest of the nation and in the interest of the Muslim community Indian civil code must be imposed in the country, only then the nation will agree that the Muslim people are true citizen of this country and they want to be included in the contrived decision and abide by the Constitution of India," he said.

Raut further arrested that until the time the Muslim community continues to follow the strict rules and regulation of other Islamic countries, people of India will continue to look upon them with suspicion.

"To the government also I want to say that their decision should not be based on the fact as to what will these Muslim organisation think regarding this. This is the issue of national interest. The government should take a decision on this," he added.

Meanwhile, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), along with several other organisations associated with the Muslim community, has opposed the Law Commission's questionnaire on the possibility of a UCC, declaring that the move amounts to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi government declaring "war" on their religious rights.

The threat of Muslim organisations to "boycott" the law commission process also comes in the backdrop of the Supreme Court hearing a challenge to triple talaq where the Centre termed the custom unconstitutional and violative of gender equality.

Accusing the government of waging "war" against the community and contending that the UCC, if implemented, will threaten the country's pluralism, the organisations said they will start a campaign to withdraw the law commission's move.

AIMPLB general secretary Wali Rehmani, Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind president Maulana Arshad Madani and representatives of other bodies addressed a press conference where the announcement was made. (ANI)
